Price/Square Foot Reaches A New High In Tega Cay Homes: October 2021

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

Latest news on the Tega Cay real estate market in October 2021 and what it means for you...


Tega Cay, South Carolina housing market remained very much a home seller's market in October 2021 evidenced by key indicators such as lower months supply of homes, significantly less housing inventory, fewer days on market, and no increase in new listings in October 2021 compared with October 2020. The price per square foot for Tega Cay homes reached a historic high in October 2021. Price per square foot was $190, up $38 (+25%) per square foot versus the same month one year ago.


Tega Cay's months of  housing inventory was 0.7 months, down 58.8% year-over-year from 1.7 months in October 2020 and 2.5 months in October 2019. Housing inventory was down 54.5% year-over-year. New listings were flat year-over-year.


Pending sales decreased 5.9% in Tega Cay in October 2021 compared with one year ago. Tega Cay's closed sales also decreased 153.6% year-over-year. Lack of inventory no doubt contributed to the lower sales.


On average, homes sold in 21 days, down 4 days compared with the same month one year ago. In October 2019, average days on market were 50.   Median days on market  decreased 1 day to 7 days in October 2021. In October 2019 median days on market were 30.


Pent-up demand for Tega Cay homes was also evident in the number of average showings per listing in October 2021. On average, listed homes had 13.8 showings, up 31.4% from 10.5 showings in October 2020 and from 6.8 showings in October 2019. Clearly, it's a matter of more buyers "chasing" after fewer homes.


Average price of sold homes decreased 13.2% to $416,842, while the median sale price decreased 3.6% to $400,000 compared with the same month one year ago. Median sale price increased by $13,000 month-over-month. The drop in home prices is not necessarily indicative of lower values for Tega Cay homes... rather it's more indicative of the mix of price points of homes sold in October. 


Sellers received a median 101.2% of listing price (up 1.2% year-over year) in final sale price, showing virtually no window of opportunity for Tega Cay home buyers to negotiate.

Tega Cay on Lake Wylie is All About Location, Location, Location and Lifestyle, Lifestyle, Lifestyle!


In Polynesian, "tega cay" means beautiful peninsula... which is exactly what Tega Cay, South Carolina is... a beautiful 1600 acre peninsula on Lake Wylie just 20 miles south of Charlotte, North Carolina. The Tega Cay community began developing in the 1970's and was originally modeled after a Polynesia resort. It includes the Tega Cay Golf Club, a 27-hole golf course, a marina, the Tega Cay Beach & Swim Center, tennis courts at the Tega Cay Tennis Club, walking trails, waterfront parks and ball fields, and so much more. The town also has its own Police Department, Fire Department and Emergency Services Squad.
Tega Cay's motto is "Bonae Vitae/The Good Life" and once you visit and take a look around, you know exactly why that's so.
An upscale, lake-side community, Tega Cay provides a high quality of life, reasonable cost of living, and top-rated public schools. Its small-town feeling provides security and comfort, and sitting on Lake Wylie, it also provides virtually year-round recreation, including boating, golf, tennis, and more. Tega Cay's Park and Recreation Department is home to more than 4,500 participants annually and features youth baseball, flag football, soccer and softball. But adults are not left out with adult softball, kickball and senior games. And where else would you find both youth and adult croquet games?

With inventories so tight, prices will continue to get higher and the value per square foot will appreciate as well.  It fun to be a seller and painful to be a buyer

HI Nina Hollander, Broker - I think that I am focusing in on Price Per Square Foot more than I have in the past.  The movement up is so fast you really need to use all the tools in your tool chest to do proper comps.

Another hot market. When you see a 50+% drop in inventory you know it is tough to find a home.

Ed Silva hi Ed, it doesn't feel like all that long ago when it was fun to be a buyer but not a seller. Everything cycles.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... I use price per square foot as a "check" on my pricing, but I'm still hesitant to overly depend on it as it misses so many other aspects of a home.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty absolutely, Jeff. And when you're looking for a home in a small town like Tega Cay a 50% drop in inventory is catastrophic.

Amazing numbers for a Tega Cay in South Carolina.  Price per square foot is definitely a good way to look at it.  A

I remember during the low times when the price per square foot was $50 or less and when you could get something decent for around $100/ft but those days are long gone, haha.

Brian England hi Brian... I remember those days, as well. If you were above $175/square foot you were talking a luxury home.
